UTSA Football Coach Jeff Traylor Reportedly Interviewed For The Job Last Week.
According to CBS Sports, Traylor participated in a 90-minute Zoom call earlier in the week with Aggies athletic director Ross Bjork as Texas A&M seeks its replacement for Jimbo Fisher.
Traylor, 55, was listed within the initial pool of candidates for the Texas A&M job along with Duke coach and former Texas A&M defensive coordinator Mike Elko after it opened Sunday.
He is in his fourth season guiding UTSA and has compiled a 37-13 mark since arriving in time for the 2020 season.
The Roadrunners captured back-to-back Conference USA championships under Traylor from 2021-22 and are 7-3 in their first season of membership in the American Athletic Conference.
The Gilmer, Texas, native is already the winningest all-time coach at a school that did not sponsor football until the 2011 season. In 2021, he signed a $28 million extension to remain with UTSA through 2031. But as we've all seen, A&M has no problem spending BIG MONEY to poach coaches from other schools away.
We'll see as we get closer to the end of the season.
